Shamanic Adventures Week: Crete


7 DAYS OF PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION THROUGH SHAMANISM, MOVEMENT, MEDITATION, BIOENERGETICS, CONNECTING WITH NATURE, MUSIC, JOURNEYING and GROUP SHARING

Join myself in collaboration with shamanic healer Ingrid Margarita and a circle of kindred spirits for 7 days of spiritual adventures, healing, connection, discovery and community in the heart of Cretan nature.

THE WORKSHOP

This life-changing retreat led by Edward in collaboration with local healer Ingrid Margarita in the sacred beauty of Cretan nature is a call to give yourself the space and time to stop, pause and to reconnect with your body, emotions, innocence, imagination and intuition and to discover the beauty and wisdom of the natural world around you, in order to find clarity for your life, creativity and healing. 

For 7 magic-filled days, assisted by a circle of kindred spirits, Edward and Ingrid will take you on a multi-dimensional journey. A dive into your body, emotions, mind and spirit; an exploration of consciousness, perception, creativity, spirituality and community.  A place to open, to feel, to ground, to explore, to choose, to shine - and to feel the joy and pleasure of your being. 

Their clarity, kindness and grounded style foster a space of clarity, creativity and connection - allowing deep healing and change to be pleasurable and effortless - and an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. You will leave with clarity and inspiration, experiencing the world in a completely different way.

The week combines movement, meditation, sound, music, dancing, shamanism, art, writing, bioenergetic processes, journeying and group sharing with trips to some of Crete’s most magical and sacred places (Lissos & Spili).

A WORD FROM FORMER RETREAT PARTICIPANTS

'I attended Edward’s workshop and had no idea what to expect. I loved the space, the music and the group. Edward's presence and guidance through movement felt nurturing, safe and freeing. I left feeling connected to my essence which feels sweet, wild and powerful.'
'The retreat was wonderfully safe, creative and open. I was so grateful for such an inspiring space to explore and connect, dive deep, move and express what was in my heart and life at the moment. Thank you for providing the support and guidance, and so much love.’

“Ingrid opened my eyes to a new dimension in my life and the possibility of being able, on my own, to break the chains.”

“Ingrid has a way to facilitate that feels so 'home' and free. She has beautiful exercises to assist ones’ presence and awareness and to help see with new eyes.”
